  1. I photograph and retouch rings and other jewellery. I've bought AP with the intention of getting rid of 12€/month Photoshop. However, while there are (more or less annoying and slow) workarounds for some of the missing features, there are a few things that AP simply can't do, which is rather infuriating because it means that I still have to keep paying Adobe to get them in PS. So here's a list: 1. A way to stroke a curve or at least to use it as a guide for a brush. Every now and then I end up with a photo that looks a bit too flat. To make the edges a bit more visible I create a path (curve) and then stroke it with a soft brush (20-30 % hardness) and then play with the opacity until it looks somewhat decent. AFAIK AP can render a curve but it does not have the ability to do that usng a custom brush. 2. Adding nodes to a path/curve without switching tools. I find AP's Pen tool to be more user-friendly than PS's version. but I'm missing the ability to add a node to an existing curve/path just by clicking on it without switching to a different tool. PS can detect when the cursor is hovering over a path to then create a node without connecting it to the end of the path. I'd therefore like to see the same feature in AP. 3. Double-click on a node to switch it from Sharp to Smooth and vice versa (like PS's Curvature Pen does). Yes, I know there's a keyboard shortcut for it, but it gets annoying when you have to do it every couple of nodes, and double-clicking on a node currently doesn't seem to do anything anyway, so why not use it for that? 4. Crop to selection, i.e. if the Crop tool is selected and a selection active, snap the crop box to it automatically. It's already possible to do this manually (by checking "snap to selection bounding box" and manually dragging the handles until they snap into place), so I don't see a reason why it wouldn't be possible to make this happen automatically. It would save people like myself who need to drop every photo like this a significant amount of time. 5. Fix saving tool settings. Even with synchronization enabled I still find myself having to switch the Inpainting Brush to sample from the layer below it every time I open a new photo. And before doing that I also need to Shift + J to get said Inpainting Brush instead of the Healing Brush. Why? 6. Limit the Exposure Adjustment layer's range. Nobody needs +/- 20 EV, especially when the minimum step on the slider is 1 EV. Make that +/- 5 EV or even less to get more resolution and make the slider actually usable. 7. Make the Noise Reduction more powerful. This is the exact opposite of the problem above. If I have a wristband or something like that with a lot of dust/scratches/fingerprints/etc., I use NR at maximum strength and minimum details to blur everything together on a new layer, then mask the edges and any details I want to keep to uncover the still-sharp layer below. Photoshop can get a decent amount of blur in one go, with AP I have to re-develop the layer 5 or 6 times to get the same result. All but 2 and 7 have been posted before (even 5+ years ago), and at least 4, 5 and 6 seem like they should be fairly easy to do, yet they're still missing. Why?
  2. Have you ever tried to arrange objects in the layers panel only to loose them, and then find it nestled in a collapsed group of objects? Ever try and move an object so it clips anther object and it ends up with an unexpected result? Ever wonder what those enigmatic icons in the layer thumbnails are trying to tell you? This guide is for anyone with those questions. From folks that are new to Affinity Products, to people who has been using it for years and struggled with the behaviour of layers. This 3-page visual how-to guide will hopefully help reveal any or all of the cryptic layer mysteries! The guide is in English for desktop versions of the products, designed the Windows version, tested mostly in Affinity Designer, but should translate well to Affinity Photo and Publisher. I would love to hear your feedback, if you notice any errors, have any additions, and/or let me know if it helps you, please chime in! NOTE: PDF DOWNLOAD AT THE BOTTOM. Please download it!

  3. Hello forum, Just purchased the product and overall it is excellent. That said, it is missing a genuinely needed option within cropping. This being the ability to lock/align the cropping tool to the center of the image so that when you click and drag from the left; the right also crops to the same amount, and like wise from top to bottom. Most importantly to me is the need to crop from a corner and for all other points to move the same amount (whilst being locked at the center) framing the image equally and effectively. I believe although do not fully remember that to do something similar in the overly priced competitor of affinity photo is by holding down alt (or maybe it was shift, but not both together) whilst cropping. For now i am manually center cropping by adding/taking away the x and y value to achive an equal border. Thanks
  4. I could really use a destructive crop method that can be triggered by shortcuts for processing large numbers of files. I know that many people would say that having a non-destructive crop is better...just not in all circumstances. Here's the scenario.I am managing a hundreds of photos of students for our school database. The photos are all rapidly taken with lots of extraneous background and very poor centring. They are also just too big in file size and bloat the database if loaded as taken (yes I know, better source photos would be great, taken at a lower resolution...yes we have tried to train the staff) This was possible in photoshop with a selection and a series of shortcuts: Rectangular selection (based on a ratio) Crop (user defined key strokes) Image size (Shift-Command I) Save at a lower resolution (Command S and offered at save time) In photoshop I managed about 200 files in about 25 minutes. This would take hours in Affinity - batch won't work because this would require the same selection to be made each time. What do you think? I know others miss this too... As a second best, the ability to click-drag to expand the crop selection (ie expand from centre not at edge or corner) would be very welcome
  5. In any given programs there is the ability to crop the canvas, however in Affinity Designer you have to go all the way to the Document Setup and do the guess work if you're cropping at a specific size. Is there any possible ways to crop the canvas on the canvas itself, like in Photoshop or Illustrator you can just resize the canvas with the artboard tool, however that doesn't seems to be the case in Affinity Designer, unless I am missing something here. Thanks!
  6. Hello! I couldn't fins answer of forum, so decided to start a new topic. I am working on project to print in Affinity Designer. I need rounded corners in printed files. How should I notice it to print house to crop it correctly? Shall I set it somehow in bleed? Is it possible with Affinity Designer? I have made transparent background and put on this retrangle with rounded corners, but I am afraid it woulnd't work for cropping correcty... Any assistance is appreciated, thank you!
  7. Good morning, It looks to me (maybe I'm wrong) that is not possible to set some default settings to the crop tool. I'd like for example to have it always set on "Original Ratio" and with the "Darken Border" always checked, in order to speed up a basic process like cropping a bunch of catalog photos. I've found this intuitive option in every processing software I've used so far but can't figure it out here. Any ideas? If such a thing doesn't exist for AP it would be awesome to have it ASAP since it'll speed up the workflow, especially when working on several images. Thanks
  8. Would be nice if AP could straighten distorted object while cropping an image like Photoshop. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/crop-straighten-photos.html It's useful for an image of buildings/documents
  9. I'm using the most recent version from the Mac App Store & for some reason I cannot crop. Specifically I cannot click & adjust the crop handles in either the Photo or Develop Personas.I click & hold on the track pad, nothing. I double, triple click, nothing. It is driving me round the bend. Is it a glitch or am I doing something stupid?
  10. Hello, Where am I going wrong, please? I want to cut out the policeman’s cap. 1 I crop the image so I can see just the cap. 2 I cut out using the pen tool 3 I click mask 4 I Cmd-C and Cmd-V into a new Affinity Photo file. See RBhBwyuhb6K3E2Y1AnDVaIsa9z4hkk The issue I have is that this takes over the cropped elements of the file. Help appreciated! Will
  11. Hi, I've just discovered the really helpful crop tools in the develop persona, specifically the 'Thirds' and 'Golden Spiral' overlay options. The problem is, the orientation of the Golden Spiral is limited. I can rotate it to a landscape or portrait orientation, but it just means that the focus of the spiral is always in the top left of the frame. There seems to be no option for bringing the centre of the spiral to the right. Is this by design or a bug? If by design, it's a bit limiting. FYI This is on Windows Version 1.9.0.932. BTW I'm loving the application. Cheers Graham
  12. I have found a repeatable bug with linked images in Publisher. Here is the repeat steps. First create an image in Affinity Photo Make a new Publisher file, link to the Photo file twice. In each picture frame move to a different part of the image. In Publisher, crop away the part of the image you are not using. In my example I have 4 hats. I crop out all but 1 hat for each "picture frame" in Publisher. Close the Publisher document. Edit the Affinity Photo document, save and close Re-open the Publisher document. The position and crop information has been reset. Note, that if you do not crop the image this does not happen. But in my case, I am working with a comic book, and I have many images on a single Affinity Photo file. Cropping the images makes it easier to zoom-in and still control the handles of the image. In other words I need to crop to get precise placement.
  13. Would be nice if I could snap Marquee and Crop tool to objects but only guides and the edge on canvas. This makes cropping/filling/deleting easier along object edge.
  14. I've been using Affinity Photo more lately and there are a few things I'm still trying to figure out. One thing I use often in Photoshop is the crop to pixels feature, you just make a selection and click the crop tool, the crop tool then automatically snaps to the outer most pixels around the selection then you just apply the crop for a pixel-perfect alignment. I have tried this in Affinity Photo as well as manually cropping and it doesn't seem to be able to do this. In some cases it's easy enough to manually crop, but this is not ideal for anything with semi-opaque pixels or glowing effects where clipping may occur if it is not cropped accurately. Is there a way to do this in Affinity Photo?
  15. Did you ever want to uncrop? The Powerful Tools Part 10 This beginner Affinity photo tutorial is part 10 of my Digitally Fearless powerful tools playlist and shows you how to do that, clip canvas and more. https://youtu.be/UP-4HHoFd90
  16. Hi! I am using Affinity designer on mac. I see that designer's crop tool is non-destructive, but I want to crop the objects destructively for other program that I'm using sometimes. If there any way to do this? Thanks!
  17. Hello, I click on the crop tool but the tool bar doesn't display the constrain options. How can I reactivate it?
  18. Using Affinity Photo 1.8.6 on a fully updated Intel iMac running Mac OS 10.15.7 (19H15), I have the following repeatable bug: If I'm in the middle of a Crop operation, I'm able to close the image without AP asking me "do you want to apply the crop?" or "Do you want to save the file?" It just closes. Steps to reproduce Open an image Type C to start a Crop Move the crop lines a little Type command W to close the image The image closes immediately with no warning. The app should ask me if I want to apply the crop, and then if I want to save the changed document but it doesn't, it just closes the document. It's a small bug bug one we'd like fixed!
  19. Hi all. How do you trim the canvas to include all the objects (but no more0? For example, in Photoshop you can simply use Trim. I can't find a similar function in Designer. Thanks!
  20. Hello All, I have a very large image with lots of large layers, (over 100), they were all rendered in my CGI application to a standard scale, as 32 bit PNG, regardless of the size actually occupied by the subject. I'm now combining them into one image, and lining them up. In many cases the layers are 90% or more 100% transparent. But to select with a click and drag, I have to go around all the blank bits I cannot see, which is messy and prone to errors. Can anyone please tell me of a quick way to crop down to the part in a layer that actually has useful non-blank pixels in it? I suspect that this would also release a LOT of memory, and make working with this image more pleasant in general! Thank You, Nick
  21. Hi. I'm loving AF so far, but of course, there's stuff from PS I can't live without, and one of them is Perspective crop. I've fiddled a lot with the crop tool but this doesn't seem to be possible. Is there a way to do it or a workaround? Perspective tool doesn't cut it for me for this purpose. Thanks.
  22. AP 1.9.0.820 beta APhoto fast exits when using the crop tool. Repro: create a document (can be empty) > Crop Tool > double click in the crop rectangle. Thanks! Edit: I just saw that it also crashes when using 'Resize Canvas' instead. There's something really broken in that release.
  23. Newbie. I am struggling with the Crop Tool. I crop an image, click Apply, it looks cropped, but it is only "hiding" the cropped portion. When I copy the cropped image to another layer in another file, the uncropped section is still visible. I must be doing something wrong. I figured Crop means Crop. Does it? I've attached the sample images. Thanks, Bob
  24. Hello, I have a NEF raw file taken with my Nikon D7200. When I open it in Affinity Photo in the develop persona, it appears cropped: I lose quite significant portions of the edges of the image. I've haven't touched any settings by this point. Is there some default settings I'm missing? Or what's going on? Interestingly, I can open it in Affinity Designer and see the entire photo, but not in Affinity Photo. Best, Joachim
  25. Hello! I'm attempting to remove lines and shapes underneath a complex shape but having trouble doing this. I've been attempting to use the "Divide" command to remove the overlapping segments and then delete those. Which is a bit time consuming and I run into problems because "Divide" will close incomplete line segments, which creates weird shapes. Images: 1-3 illustrate what I'm trying to do: Remove everything intersecting in the grey shape but keep the rest. 4th image is my actual artwork which gets complex so I need to do this efficiently. It also needs to be fully removed (not hidden) because it's on the way to a laser cutter. 5th image is what happens when I "Divide". As you can see the v line segment on the top left closes into a shape. And the bottom line looses a section. Thanks for your help!
